Tech Track 100

Its technology produces renewable energy from waste that would otherwise end up in landfill, turning the material into a gas and using it for fuel, partnering with development companies in the UK to create large-scale facilities. It has four operational facilities in the UK, in Northamptonshire, Cheshire, Birmingham, and Dartmoor, with sites under construction in Cardiff and the Wirral. It says the renewable electricity produced from one of its 10MWe facilities can sustain 25,000 homes, and in 2017 it acquired Canadian waste gasification systems developer Nexterra Systems for an undisclosed sum. The company was founded in 2014 by chairman David Pike, 67, and chief executive Ian Brooking, 50. It has raised undisclosed funding from investors including asset manager Foresight and Canadian engineering services firm Stantec, and partners include Lockheed Martin and Balfour Beatty.
